Regarding the price difference, is it higher than that of what I spent or the other way round? Just to give you a heads up, I booked my car in January itself and the price I paid was the introductory price.

Happy motoring,
Cheers,
Alston
@ alstonlobo

Yes you are right, i got mine in mid of july and it was 5000 costlier than when you got and in august the prices increased again by 7000-8000 (Price increased across all manufacturers during August). So this will definitely make the difference in the prices before and now.

@vivek

also depends on the road tax. There was a revision in road tax by the government in April (not exactly sure about the month, but as of now will consider as apr) by about 14% i believe.

If someone could post the road tax of there vehicle till march, it would be better to compare.

For my Beat LS, the road tax was 35000 in chennai and the same in bangalore is 52000 so would be definitely lesser in your place than compared to chennai or b'lore.

Not to forget, the hike in excise duty to 4% also added up to the price of all Beats

@vikra,

i suppose you need not wait for much long time, since you can find the launch of LPG version in this yr and diesel just right after that.

No Salbin, its from ebay. The super rich motors dont seem genuine to me cos I sent them a query email and it bounced back.

I will see how this product is shipped and if I'm happy, will order more stuff from Korea.

Yes, Road Tax in Kerala is cheaper than other states its only 6% of the Ex Showroom price AFAIK. I paid around 21K against an Ex Shw Price of 353K as life tax ie; 15 years.

You are right Sajjt, I had to Pay around 4.45 Lacs for the Beat LT model. Actually i had booked this by March but due to some reasons i extended the date of delivery and took my black beauty by August Only. The Split up will be like this approximately.
Factory Price - 4.10 L
RTO + Registration Charges - 24 K
Insurance - 11K

So in total it will come around a total cost of 4.45 Lacs. Is it necessary to start a new thread for my blacky's's review or can i continue it here. Please advise friends.

@VIVEK,

May be you can write up a review of your vehicle in initial ownership review thread, in that you can also mention about your buying experience, along with some pics of the car. This is according to me, i think others will be showering their ideas on how to since i am not so experienced in write ups
